Horror Visual Novel ‘Corpse Party: Blood Drive’ Gets Switch and PC Release Date

Publisher XSEED Games has revealed the release date for the 5pb developed horror visual novel Corpse Party: Blood Drive. The visual novel will launch digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch in North America and Europe and on PC-via Steam, GOG.com, and the Humble Store by Humble Bundle on October 10, 2019 for $19.99, all with a 10% launch week discount.

Corpse Party: Blood Drive marks the final installment of the story that started with Corpse Party and then continued on in Corpse Party: Book of Shadows. Blood Drive is set two months after the tragic events of Corpse Party: Book of Shadows. For the sake of not spoiling anything from the previous game, basically in Blood Drive, players will be on the search to find the grim grimoire, called the Book of Shadows, or else the world will fall apart. However, like in other Corpse Party games, there are bound to be some twists and turns that players will go through throughout Blood Drive.

On the gameplay side of things, players are going to take direct control of a character or party of characters and explore the ruins of Heavenly Host Elementary and other locations from a top-down 3D perspective. Sounds easy enough, but it won’t be as players will need to dodge or disarm traps, run from malicious entities, solve puzzles and directly interact with the environment to trigger visual novel-style cutscenes. One interesting feature to mention is that Blood Drive is the first game in the Corpse Party series to feature settings and characters rendered in 3D.

As fans of the latest Corpse Party release, Corpse Party: Sweet Sachiko’s Hysteric Birthday Bash (take a look at our review), we’re looking forward to the release of Corpse Party: Blood Drive for Switch and PC. For a quick history lesson, though: Corpse Party: Blood Drive originally released for PlayStation Vita back in October 2015, and then was ported over to Android and iOS in January 2017.

Whether you’re thinking of downloading the Switch version or the PC version, you can check out trailers and screenshots for both versions below:
